Leo Africanus by Amin Maalouf( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in Polish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: "I, Hasan the son of Muhammad the weigh-master, I, Jean-Leon de Medici, circumcised at the hand of a barber and baptized at the hand of a pope, I am now called the African, but I am not from Africa, nor from Europe, nor from Arabia. I am also called the Granadan, the Fassi, the Zayyati, but I come from no country, from no city, no tribe. I am the son of the road; my country is the caravan, my life the most unexpected of voyages." Thus wrote Leo Africanus, in his fortieth year, in this imaginary autobiography of the famous geographer, adventurer, and scholar Hasan al-Wazzan, who was born in Granada in 1488. His family fled the Inquisition and took him to the city of Fez, in North Africa. Hasan became an itinerant merchant, and made many journeys to the East, journeys rich in adventure and observation. He was captured by a Sicilian pirate and taken back to Rome as a gift to Pope Leo X, who baptized him Johannes Leo. While in Rome, he wrote the first trilingual dictionary (Latin, Arabic and Hebrew), as well as his celebrated Description of Africa, for which he is still remembered as Leo Africanus

"Intrigued, Sofer is drawn into investigating the enigma of the Khazars. Why did these Steppe warriors decide to become Jews? Why after centuries of power and prosperity, were they effaced from history? What is the connection between this ancient people and the terrorist group calling themselves the New Khazars? And is the elusive beauty whom Sofer connot forget connected to them? With a duel storyline alternating between the tenth and twenty-first centuries, The Wind of the Khazars is a historical novel and thriller."--Jacket

"Venice, 1756: the city is at the height of its prodigious power. But as the madness of Carnival descends, a dark force stalks the gothic shadows." "The body of one of Venice's brightest actors has been discovered: crucified, his eyes gouged out and lines of verse carved into his chest. And it is not an isolated killing. For the murderer, known only as the Chimera, is determined to people the nine circles of Dante's Inferno with the traitorous, the depraved and the gluttonous. Only by releasing the Black Orchid - childhood friend of Casanova, rake, gambler, lover, spy and soon-to-be detective - a man condemned to death for adultery and awaiting his execution beneath the Bridge of Sighs, can the Doge of Venice hope to put an end to the grotesque killings." "The Black Orchid soon finds himself ensnared in a terrible game of cat and mouse. As the streets of Venice fill with masked Carnival-goers, and as the Orchid's old enemies - and old lovers - return to haunt him, he is drawn further in to the inferno, to the heart of a secret sect and a plot to bring about the downfall of Venice."--Jacket
